Planet Earth... I think...
I just broke my own personal best of 44.02 seconds with a time of 41.82 seconds — and it would have been faster but I accidentally hit the side of my iPad instead of the screen to stop the timer. (I’m trying really hard to not make my cubing hobby more expensive by the cost of a new iPad...) I used 4LLL. After doing it for a bit, I can see how it’s definitely faster than basic LBL, and how CFOP would be even faster.

I’ve been averaging about 40-45 seconds all day, I think, but forgot to timer most of the time. Oh well, live and learn I suppose!

Good job! You don't need another ipad! They are expensive, really expensive! You should get a stackmat and a mat if anything for about 40 dollars! They will save you a fortune, and to put the times in, use the type function on a computer laying around!

I’ve thought about that, but I just don’t have the space. Right now I either sit on my bed or the couch, and tap the iPad to start / stop the timer (I use the Rubik’s cube app for timing). Maybe some day when I have access to a little more space....

I've recently came back from a 6 year hiatus, I think the lockdown helped, so I have a lot of catching up to do both in terms of speed and hardware.. goodbye money.

But alas, despite spending nearly 6 years away, rarely ever picking up a cube and having lost most of the algorithms I knew; I haven't lost a great deal of speed.. and in some cases I even got faster? :oops:

Note: the 2014 times are either taken from official averages or simply what I remember averaging back then as I have no time data available, the 2020 times are taken after a fortnight or so with the same, now old, hardware with the exception of the 6x6 times.

CubeTime, 2014~Time, 2020~
2x25~6~
3x317-1919-23
4x455-1:1050-1:00
5x51:40-2:001:35-1:55
6x63:30-3:403:15-3:25
7x75:10-5:304:40-5:00
Mega1:50-2:001:55-2:10

As a final note, I finally have a 6x6 that doesn't explode if you look at it funny \o/

Solved my 9x9 in 1h29m22s today, a massive 47m+ off my old PB! :D

OK, admittedly it was only my second solve, but still... ;)

I did it, and inside my estimate too!

If you're interested...

1st C 06:03
2nd C 09:53
3rd C 08:29
4th C 10:35
5th & 6th C 12:36

47m36s

1st 4 Edges 09:24
2nd 4 Edges 06:56
Last 4 + P 12.02

28m22s

3x3 + OLL P and
Misplaced Centres(!) 5m14s

Total 81m14s

Towards the end I was being excessively cautious. :p

I was pleased with my last 2 centres as they usually give me a lot of trouble...


Next, a 9x9... ;)
My first sub 1 hour 8*8 solve today. :) 57m44s.

In case you're interested my cube is a Yu Xin Little Magic.
